Early Life

Ben Askren was born on July 18th, 1984 in the city of Cedar Rapids, which is situated in the state of Iowa, in the United States of America.

When he first made his appearance on the planet, he did it at the house that belonged to Chuck and Michele Askren. He has an elder brother named Max who also wrestles and the two of them compete against each other. 2010 was the year when his brother won the national championship and took first place.

Ben was a student at Arrowhead High School from his freshman year all the way through his senior year, and he received his diploma from that institution.

While he was still in high school, he won the state wrestling championship not once, but twice. This accomplishment came while he was still a student.

After some time had passed, he enrolled in the University of Missouri, and it was there that he started wrestling on an amateur level for the first time.

 

Career

Competition in the National Collegiate Athletic Association was something that he took part in in the year 2004, specifically (NCAA). However, he was unable to earn a victory for himself in his early fights and this continued throughout his career.

In the wrestling match, he and Chris Pendleton competed against each other beginning in 2004, and continued through 2005, with Chris Pendleton coming out on top both times. Ben was finally able to come back into form in 2006, and he extended his run of successful performances in 2007.

His ability to pin opponents first came to everyone’s attention while he was competing in wrestling for the NCAA. He concluded his junior year in 2005-2006 undefeated in the game, having won all 45 of his matches and having a total of 25 pins to his credit.

Ben’s senior season, 2006-07, saw him maintain the strong play he displayed the year before. After his career was over, he finished with a record of 42-0 victories and 0 losses.

After defeating Keith Gavin, he was handed his second NCAA championship title and became the champion of that organization. Ben was ultimately victorious in the competition for the Dan Hodge Trophy that he participated in.

As a result of this victory, he is only the second individual in the annals of competition to take home the Dan Hodge Trophy on more than one occasion.

In addition to that, he enjoyed a prosperous career as a wrestler while he was in college. He won 153 matches while only losing 8 of them, which is a new record. He took part in the Olympic competition in the year 2008, which took place in 2008.

Following his participation in the Olympics, he made the decision to instead compete in mixed martial arts. In his first-ever bout of mixed martial arts, which took place on February 7, 2009, he faced off against Josh Flowers. The fight was stopped in the first round by a technical knockout, which he used to defeat Josh.

At the Cerro Pelado International competition in 2010, he was given the opportunity to exact his revenge alongside Fundora. In the battle for the semi-final, he prevailed over Fundora, which ultimately led to his winning the competition.

After the conclusion of his previous contract with Bellator on December 9, 2013, he was offered a deal with ONE Championship that would see him compete for that organization over the course of the following two years.

In his last fight, which took place at ONE Championship, he faced off against Shinya Aoki. Ben defeated Shinya via a technical knockout in the opening round of their matchup.
